Recommended by:

  • byDr Lukshmy Jeyalingam, GP

    I was Mr Battacharjee SHO when I was a GP trainee at Northwick Park, he supervised me so well and made sure I was supported on labour ward and antenatal clinics. I learnt so much from his kind and generous nature to the patients. He is a great listener and would always make the patient understand the management plan. In summary a great colleague, friendly and always here to advice GP's. Great working with him and I wish him the best with this recommendation.

    Frequently asked questions

  • What are the common symptoms that your patients tend to present with?

    The common symptoms that my patients normally present with are, of course, fertility because that's my special interest. I do fertility both in the NHS and in the private sector. I deal with all the initial aspects of fertility, from counseling to investigations, any surgical management that can be done of including fibroids, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, polyps or diagnostic aspects, ultrasound scan and treatment.

    Even if they need assisted reproduction, which is IVF, I work very closely with IVF clinics both in North London as well as in Central London where we provide all aspects of fertility care of assisted reproduction, including egg freezing and pre-implantation genetic testing and the follow-up as well.

    I'm on the board for the International Society of Reproductive Surgery and on the editorial board of Ultrasound Journal. I do my own ultrasounds. I generally provide a one-stop clinic as far as possible, provided the hospital has the facilities where I try to do as much as possible in the same sitting in the first initial visit. If they need surgery, then, of course, we book them straight away. If not, then we can even start them on treatment straight away or arrange for assisted reproduction, IVF, if that's needed.

    The other common symptoms that my patients often present with are, of course, the general gynaecological symptoms which are bleeding and pain. Bleeding could happen in young and middle-aged women, as well as in post-menopausal women. In post-menopausal women, after menopause, of course, one has to rule out more sinister causes like cancers and, therefore, they need to be seen soon and they need to be investigated with a hysteroscopy or an ultrasound scan, in most cases, which I offer there straight away. Most often, it's a one-stop service.

    In younger women, of course, there can be fibroids, polyps and other pathology which, again, they can get the diagnosis straightaway and treatment, in most cases, within a week, with the surgical treatment as and when needed.

    I provide all aspects of hysteroscopic and laparoscopic treatment or surgery for all pathology. I have specialist training in laparoscopy, advanced laparoscopy and hysteroscopy. I'm on the British Society of Gynaecological Endoscopy courses. I train in those as well. I provide those including hysterectomy laparoscopically.

    The other common symptoms that women often present in my clinic is with pain, with pelvic pain, abdominal pain. Pain, of course, is a very large, broad, big and sometimes quite a vague area as such with a lot of overlap between other specialties. Management as well is often better if other specialties are involved, if they need to be involved. I work very closely with gastroenterologists, physiotherapists, counselors, pain management team and with psychosexual medicine specialists and we actually almost, not formally, but informally, we practically run like a joint multi-disciplinary team, so that if somebody has any other aspects of pain management that's needed, we normally arrange it straightaway. Many patients actually need more than one input.

    For gynaecology, the common causes of pain could be ovarian cysts. It could also be an endometriosis, previous surgery, pelvic infections. I offer scan straightaway, any diagnostic investigation. If they need a laparoscopic treatment to any of these, I normally offer them as well.

    The fourth common symptom that women often present with is menopausal symptoms. That's a big area. And I regularly provide counseling and management for menopause and menopausal symptoms.

  • What are the treatments that you're able to offer your patients?

    I also deal with early pregnancy. Because I do scans, most of my clinics have ultrasound scans. Most of them are one-stop clinics. Therefore, I offer them diagnostics in the same setting. Sometimes treatment in the same setting, if that's feasible to do it in an outpatient setting. If they need surgery, as I said, I normally offer all aspects of laparoscopic and hysteroscopic surgery. I offer them at the first available date which is normally within a week or two.

  • What are your areas of sub-specialist interest?

    I have trained in fertility in UCL and I run a fertility clinic in the NHS as well as in the private sector. In the private sector, I do a one-stop clinic and I work quite closely with tertiary IVF units both in Central London and in Northwest London. Thereby, I provide all aspects of infertility management which includes IVF and egg freezing and PIGD (pre-implantation genetic diagnosis).

    With diagnosis and both male and female infertility, I provide all aspects. Any surgical treatment that's needed, I am on the board for the International Society for Reproductive Medicine and Fallopian Tubes and I provide all aspects of surgical management that are relevant to fertility like fibroids, polyps, uterine septum, ovarian cysts, endometriosis and tubal surgery.


    With regards to other subspecialties, I am trained in minimal access surgery, like laparoscopic, hysteroscopic and keyhole surgery. I train in the British Society of Gynaecological Endoscopy courses. I regularly do all aspects of laparoscopic and hysteroscopic surgeries including myomectomies and hysterectomies.

    So, most of my surgeries are through keyhole, which helps patients in recovering quickly. They most often go home the same day and have much less pain and quick recovery. It helps them that way.

    The third subspecialisation, if I may say so, would be one-stop gynaecologic clinic that I offer everywhere. Any gynaecological problem, pain and bleeding being the common symptoms in gynaecology, but I always tend to offer a one-stop clinic, so it causes minimum inconvenience. They come and have consultation; if scan facility is available at the premises, then I do the scan straightaway. Almost all the investigations are done in the same setting. Some minor treatments can be done in an outpatient setting. I do it at the same sitting as well. So, that's may be all that's needed.

    Occasionally, if somebody needs some gut tests or investigations or a surgery, then I just put them for that straightaway for that and they have it soon. So, one-stop gynecologic clinic which includes an ultrasound scan, minimal access surgery and fertility are the three subspecialist areas.
